I came here in a rainy misty day but the view is still amazing. This place must looks magical when it's sunny. The water color is unique and beautiful, a shade of blue with a hint of green.

Went during golden week so expected the crowds. Still, pretty annoyed to constantly be asked to move by wedding photographers (top tip, don’t move, they don’t own the space). That said, amazing views and very easy to get to if you’re in the area for...More

The colour of this lake even in the rain was incredible. The water was still and clear and so peaceful even with all the visitors!

The valley is great place for some nice photos. It is quite chilly but the views of the valley and surrounding mountains are awesome. Worth a visit definitely.

Blue Moon Valley is one of the most picturesque places we have seen in China. The aqua blue waters surrounded by the towering mountains make this a beautiful site. Definitely worth seeing.

Must go place in Lijiang!! Stop along on the way up or down from Jade Dragon Mountain. The water is magnificently emerald on a clear day. Superb background for pictures taking!!!! Rent some traditional customs at 20rmb :)

One of the most beautiful scenic backdrops for photos I've ever had. As other reviewers have pointed out though, it can be pretty crowded - nonetheless, if you have the patience, you can sneak in a few shots. A must-go not only for those visiting...More

The nature is beautiful. This is undeniable. Even though it was overcast and we couldn’t see the mountain. However, it has been turned into a theme park style like most other tourists spots in China which detracts from the beauty of the nature itself. If...More

During the summer, the temperatures can be quite cool and the upper mountains still have snow. With the altitude, I suspect that there could be quite a bit of snow in that area.

Yes 000Wanderer000 is correct. The fee is incorporate into the park. Instead of climbing the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, you can take the mini paid bus (different from the big bus to the Mt).
